Runway 27, Left Back In Memphis
It's about time for another chapter in Runway 27, Left's quest for cultivating their - what radio personality Mike Lidskin of Twirl Radio in Sacramento, California called - sparse sound; February 2013 will see Runway 27, Left head for Memphis, Tennessee, to record the first part of their upcoming second album at the historic Sun Records Studio.
Says lead guitarist Erich 'Whitefeather' Brandl, 'Recording at Sun Records is like a dream come true. Moreover, we have been proud owners of St. Blues cigar-box guitars since November last year, so we're also very much looking forward to meeting up again with the folks at the guitar workshop and with local musicians Slidin' Clyde Roulette and Lamar, who were incredibly supportive when we first went to Memphis in April last year.'
Following 37 performances in 2011 and 2012 in Germany and Austria, acoustic duo Runway 27, Left's first album 'Weekend Warriors' was released on their label 'Weissfeder Records' in March 2012. The harbinger of their first album, radio-only release 'Flawed & Flattened', had already gathered radio airplay in the UK, the USA, Spain, The Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Austria and Macedonia. Eventually, April and May 2012 saw their first, brief guest appearances in the USA upon invitation by local artists in Memphis, TN, and New Orleans, LA.
Runway 27, Left is a blues project having former Trans Am/Sun Luca/Run Riot bass player Erich 'White Feather' Brandl and My Other Brother lead vocalist Anthony 'Tone' Kammerhofer team up.
The musicians (Erich Brandl - guitars, bass, backing vocals and Anthony Kammerhofer - lead vocals, rhythm guitars) try to reconnect with the roots of pop and rock music, calling their style 'In-Blues Entertainment'.
